Praise for Stephanie Barron

"Witty, immaculately researched."
--USA Today

"Barron nails the period. She talks the talk and knows her history."
--The Boston Globe

"Wonderful . . . echoing the rhythms of the Austen novels with uncanny."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Some of the most enjoyable, well-written fanfic ever created."
--O Magazine

"Sings with not just a good plot but courtly language and an engaging group of characters worthy of the famed novelist herself . . . A first-rate mystery with so many twists and turns that you can hardly blame a reader who doesn't figure it out until the end."
--The Denver Post

"Ingenious in plot--Barron plays fair with clues in this intriguing whodunit--Jane's latest adventure offers readers still more: a glimpse of holiday celebrations of two centuries ago, a pleasant excursion into the lives of Britons and a collection of well-drawn characters. Add Barron's deft imitation of her subject's prose style, and you have a novel that its subject may well have admired."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Splendid fun!"
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[A]n excellent period mystery for all historical fiction fans . . . Jane Austen devotees will especially appreciate immersing themselves in the many biographical details about Austen that accompany the fictional murder mystery."
--Library Journal, Starred Review

"Vivid characters propel the subtle plot to its surprising conclusion. The first-person narration captures Austen's tone as revealed in her letters: candid, loving, and occasionally acerbic."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
